The Festival of the Horse Championships consists of two competitions; the Challenge and the Combined Training.
This competition is designed to be a test of a horse and rider’s ability to negotiate a show jumping course together with a cross-country course. The challenge consists of 7 to 10 show jumps, followed by 15 to 25 cross-country efforts.
There are six challenge classes for both individuals and teams:
- Senior 100
- Junior 100
- Senior 90
- Junior 90
- Senior 80
- Junior 80
This competition consists of one dressage test and one course of show jumps. Both individuals and teams can qualify for this competition. For teams, two team members will take part in the Prelim/75 Section, riding a prelim dressage test and show jumping at 75cm. The other two members will take part in the Novice/85 Section riding a novice dressage test and show jumping an 85cm round. Elimination from one phase will result in elimination from the other.
Both teams and individuals will compete at the area qualifiers, highest placed individuals will be invited to the championships from each section. The winning team will be decided from the best three scores in both phases. For eligibility requirements, please visit the BRC Handbook.

British Riding Clubs have once again taken out abandonment insurance for the three outdoor 2018 Championships that are held on grass, and therefore have a greater likelihood of being subject to weather related abandonment compared to those held at a permanent venue. These Championships are: the Festival of the Horse, the National Horse Trials and the National Championships. This insurance covers these events in the case of abandonment due to adverse weather conditions. Should any of these three events be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, and the insurance policy conditions are satisfied, then all Championship entry fees and stable booking fees will be refunded in full. This excludes all Prelim entry fees for the Championship, and Area entry fees for the associated qualifiers. For all other BRC events, the refund policy as detailed in the current BRC Handbook will stand.
